Ozarks Property Rights Congress Meeting
April 28 -7:00 p.m.—Hayloft Restaurant
Mountain Grove, Missouri
Come early if you care to eat as no food is allowed in the meeting room,
due to limited restaurant staff.
Larry Dills from Rogersville, will talk about the Missouri Conservation Department releasing the names & addresses of folks who have bought hunting or fishing permits, to the Appalachian Wildlife Foundation. AWF, in turn, sends solicitation letters to those people on the MDC list. AWF gave $50,000 to MDC to assist in bringing elk to Missouri.
There will be updates on several AG bills. Doreen will discuss HB209, which infringes on private property owners ability to protect their property from serious nuisances. It has passed both houses & is waiting for the Governor’s signature to become law. We are asking that Gov. Nixon veto HB209, as it effectively implements statewide zoning & has great potential to destroy one’s ability to protect their property.
Bob will talk about HB458, the Missouri Farmland Trust Act has passed through the House 157-0 & is now in the Senate Agriculture, Food Production & Outdoor Resource Committee. Do we really want the state of Missouri in the real estate leasing business? Let the private sector determine what happens to the land. Senator Chuck Purgason is a member of that committee – Call him.
By meeting time we will probably know if the Governor has signed SB113 which modifies Prop B. The Humane Society of the US is using national TV to encourage out-of-state folks to call Gov. Nixon urging him not to sign the bill. It was HSUS money that passed Prop B in the first place.
